Summer Proof Casual Shoes

Summer casual shoesI always seem to struggle finding perfect shoes, especially for summer time…I get on with boots but sandals and flats are a real pain for some reason. But now I have new shopping approach called “strategic shopping”. I know it sounds weird but it works really well. I used to buy everything I like and I would end with many things I really didn’t need. Now I prepare a plan and do my research. Basically before doing shopping I set up my budget, think what kind of pieces my wardrobe is missing and what colour would work best with the rest of my things. I go through all possible websites and if I don’t find the item that matches all of the criteria – I don’t buy anything. I bought some really nice shoes for last summer and for this summer I wanted stripy espadrilles, comfortable good quality plimsolls in neutral colour and peachy pink suede sandals. After going through all online stores I finally got exactly what I wanted for summer…shame the weather is not summer like at all!

First on the list, this super comfy Asos JAZZMAN Toe Cap Espadrilles (for only £14!). Espadrilles are irreplaceable for summer in my opinion, this pair is super practical and works well with so many outfits!

They are also available in white.

I spotted them in my local Debenhams, they are from Faith – Faith Coral suede slingback sandals (£29) and they look exactly like I wanted them to look. Btw I’ve never been keen on Faith, but their 2015 Summer collection is pretty stunning, lots of very pretty shoe designs. Debenhams have updated their shoe department as well and I am quite impressed with them actually.
